Garage sale of epic proportions for Republic of Doyle props
If you're one of the fans who's going to miss CBC's Republic of Doyle, you'll have a chance to take home a piece of the show this weekend.
The show has wrapped up filming of its sixth and final season, and will be selling props, sets and wardrobe pieces at a garage sale in St. John's on Saturday.
Ross Leslie, production manager, said just about everything is up for grabs — including the kitchen sink.
"We have to get rid of it all because it is a tonne of stuff, and to pay for storage for it, until we do the movie, would be much too long keeping it and paying for storage. And we don't have it [the movie] written yet," said Leslie.
"So, how much is going to take place in The Duke? We don't know. If it's only a day, we'll probably just go to The Duke and film it rather than build it all over again."
Some of the more iconic show pieces, including Jake Doyle's leather jacket and the GTO, are being saved for use in the movie.
The sale is going ahead on Saturday at the old Torbay Recreation Centre, where the show was filmed, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.
Proceeds from the sale of items will be donated to charities in the St. John's area, as a gesture of thanks from the show to the city.
